Again, multiple perspectives of the same time-frame fascinate me. This book hops back in time to around the time that the first book starts, but instead of following the three original characters, The Desert Spear follows mainly Jardir. The character development shown by this method of writing is amazing! Jardir is assumed in the first novel to be a harsh and power hungry man, but this novel proves the reader wrong: At least partially. Fantastic! ( )

Even better than the first book in the series, the characters are all maturing, and developing well, even more demon types, great plot and plenty twists and intrigue, the appearance of the princelings rounds of a great book, I've already started the next book "the daylight war". ( )

Follows Jardir, the Desert Spear [the man who betrayed Arlin in the first book], as he grows up and takes over the Krasians. Begins his drive to take over the northern kingdoms to make them all one so they can effectively fight against the demons wholesale. Arlin, Leesha and Rojer are wound through the story, and Leesha plays the next biggest role, after Jardir.

Once again I really enjoyed this, not quite as much as The Warded Man, and am looking forward to the next book in this cycle. ( )

After reading up on the next two books in the series, I think I'll quit while I'm ahead. ( )

Wow. I thought The Painted/Warded Man was great but The Desert Spear is even better. If the sequel were available, I would download it right now and start reading. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"The sun is setting on humanity. The night now belongs to voracious demons that prey upon a dwindling population forced to cower behind half-forgotten symbols of power. Legends tell of a Deliverer: a general who once bound all mankind into a single force that defeated the demons. But is the return of the Deliverer just another myth? Perhaps not. Out of the desert rides Ahmann Jardir, who has forged the desert tribes into a demon-killing army. He has proclaimed himself Shar?Dama Ka, the Deliverer, and he carries ancient weapons?a spear and a crown?that give credence to his claim. But the Northerners claim their own Deliverer: the Warded Man, a dark, forbidding figure. Once, the Shar?Dama Ka and the Warded Man were friends. Now they are fierce adversaries. Yet as old allegiances are tested and fresh alliances forged, all are unaware of the appearance of a new breed of demon, more intelligent?and deadly?than any that have come before" --Cover, p. 4.… (more)
